Cullinan’s Curious Jan Harmsgat Se Agterplaas

Send to Kindle

Jan Harmsgat Se Agterplaas is a unique and very quirky, café, gift shop and function venue. If you are near Cullinan or passing through the area you should make sure you stop in here for a visit. The garden outside is decorated with a number of statues and creations made from discarded wire, glass and other junk. The two drag queen statues are quite an eye catcher!

When you step inside the venue and the gift shop you will notice that the artist’s creations are everywhere, making this a very interesting place. If you are after a very different gift, random furniture or something splendidly different for you home then this is the place you want to shop for it.

While here why not relax, enjoy a beverage and order a picnic basket. There are a number of wonderful picnic options, some of the favourites being raison bread and pumpkin fritters, salami roll with creamed cheese, pickled tongue with baby tomatoes and green olives, dry wors, biltong devilled eggs, beef fillet kebabs, vetkoek and more. There is also an exciting salad selection to choose from. You may also order a divine cheese platter, coupled with crackers, dried fruits and jams. Make sure you look at the tasty treats you can take home.

The function room is ideal for weddings, birthdays, themed parties and even conferences and you are guaranteed to have your guests talking about your event for years to come. The setting is very rustic, a bit eccentric and will certainly meet and exceed your expectations.

So whether it is a whole day out, a short visit or an event you are there for, you are guaranteed to have a good time, see some bizarre and interesting art and eat some tasty food. If you want to stay for the night, Gastehys JanHarmsgat will be  pleased to accommodate you.
